Sad news today as the world says farewell to a talented musician. Saxophonist Bobby Keys, most notable for his work with the Rolling Stones, has passed away today at the age of 70. Though he was never an official member of the band, Keys worked with the Stones consistently from 1964 through 1974 with the album “It’s Only Rock ‘n Roll” and then once again from 1980 until 2005.
At that point Keys had to stop touring due to medical complications and a long battle with cirrhosis. The Rolling Stones were not the only bnd to be graced by Keys exceptional skill. His resume also totes such names as Eric Clapton, John Lennon, & George Harrison. He will truly be missed.
